A woman in the United States is believed to be the third person in the world — and the first woman — to be cured of HIV, according to multiple news reports.
The patient was being treated for leukemia and underwent a new transplant method involving umbilical cord blood, according to researchers.
The stem cells she received came from someone with natural resistance to the AIDS-causing virus, according to reports, and the woman has now been free of the virus herself for 14 months.
Experts warn that the transplant method is too risky to be widely used for most people with HIV.
